Years ago I used to wake up and analyze my own dreams in the early morning. I never read anything about it … just winged it (my favorite technique). One of the most interesting things I found out is that, almost without exception, my dreams were storyline elaborations of some metaphor, that is, a saying that embodied an abstract concept in an image of a physical action, like a brief AV clip.
DREAMS ACT OUT METAPHORS
For instance, the term ‘missed a stitch,’ which to my conscious mind means ‘forgot something important’, means this to my unconscious mind: Most importantly, it conveys a feeling of dismay. And secondly, it creates an image of a person sewing, and making a mistake while pulling the needle through the fabric. That is the unconscious content of the metaphor: A feeling, and a physical image.
Now then, just as we fall asleep, our emotional body has a particular ‘flavor’, often the result of what has happened that day. We may be feeling exhausted, lacking in enthusiasm, ‘put down’, anxious, angry … or maybe the opposite of these. As we fall asleep, the unconscious mind takes note of this emotional ‘key’, and pegs it to a metaphor. Then in the dream state, a story based on this metaphor unfolds …
And though I give but one example, the possibilities for unfoldment of dreamtime stories through metaphor are legion. Over and over again, night after night, the predominant emotion I felt on falling asleep would be interpreted as a metaphor and elaborated upon as a dreamtime story (with the same emotional content throughout). For more on this, see …

BARBECUE THE HEART SABOTAGING PROGRAMS
Now so, given that the language of the unconscious mind is emotion + image (metaphor; AV clip), what has been happening on the astral plane (our ‘field of dreams’ through which we co-create reality) during the Atlantean Age? Nothing all that delightful. We can see from the newspaper headlines that our emotional realm here on Earth has picked up a habit of negativity. This is played out in our dreams, our headlines, our politics, our economics, and in Earth’s weather patterns.
I peg the negativity to ‘barbecue the heart sabotaging programs’ our body elementals have been picking up. Here is an example I ran into today…. I think it is pretty widespread …
“I want people to look up to me. I’ll put people down.”
What is happening here? A person thinks, with their mental mind: I want people to look up to me. There is great longing in the emotional body as the mind thinks this thought, so the unconscious mind takes notice. It feels the emotion of longing, and sees a picture of people physically looking up to this person. It pegs this to another metaphor, the ‘put down’.
Here is the perfect solution, from the perspective of the unconscious mind. If their person ‘puts people down’, then clearly people will be looking up to him. And so, a body elemental is programmed with these two contradictory metaphors. The ‘looking up’ metaphor keeps the engine of desire stoked. The ‘putting people down’ metaphor is the acting out of this unconscious desire in the physical world.
If I listen to the gut brain of this person in the astral plane, and tune in to this body elemental (of which each person has many), I will hear it repeating this sabotaging ‘mantra’ over and over again, sotto voce. If I observe their behavior on the physical plane, I will see put down after put down unfolding.
Why? Why do folks do this? Why are they not seeing how they are barbecuing peoples’ hearts? How every heart with whom they enact this routine will close tight and turn away from them? Because, in their unconscious mind, the little body elemental is going on rote. It is satisfied that all is right. It is not noticing the adverse outcome on the physical plane. It does not know that it is sabotaging his heart.
What does it take to fix this? It takes the man’s own conscious mind realizing the sabotaging program and transforming it with love. When I discover these programs in myself, I tell my body elemental: Would you hug me round the neck and tell me you love me? Which they do with alacrity. It is pretty cool to be hugged by a body elemental. So then I say, I love you, I love you, I love you! Thank you sooooo much!
And so then my body elemental is reprogrammed to a positive emotion and image, just like that, in the wink of an eye.
ABOUT BODY ELEMENTALS
Image: A little green dinosaur toy called Cognitoy, powered by IBM Watson Artificial Intelligence … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51Fyw74MJlL._AC_UL320_SR222,320_.jpg … This dinosaur can carry on a conversation with a child.
Body elementals are a little like the Elemental Path Cognitoy (1) … cute, intelligent (not as intelligent as the toy, though). Body elementals think simple thoughts. They can be programmed for chronological transmissions, for example every morning, or every hour, or once a year on a specific date. The toy cannot express the depth of emotion that a body elemental can convey. Still, the similarities are striking.
Body elementals can be programmed to talk back to us … usually no more than two thoughts or sentences … like this talking parrot toy …

Body elementals (aka artificial elementals, or body ‘thought forms’) can take on any appearance, depending on their emotional and mental thought content, and on the personality of the person who creates them or projects them. There’s more on this here …

PROJECTED SABOTAGING ENERGIES: MALE POSSESSIVENESS
In addition … bothersome bother in the fourth dimension … there is great trouble with projection of sabotaging programs from other folks’ body elementals to my own. This can happen anytime during the day, if I am distracted from meditative mind. It also happens every night, during dreamtime, and that without fail.
For instance, women through their sacral chakra are naturally drawn to men. Men, through their sacral chakra, are sometimes programmed ‘2N’ … second chakra negative … with ‘possessiveness’ body elementals. When these men are in relationship with women, their sacral chakra body elementals will project this energy onto the woman’s sacral chakra body elemental: I want you. I need you. Let’s make love. Then when they see the woman of their dreams wink at another man, their sabotaging body elemental projects this energy on her: Don’t feel that! Don’t feel desire! I can’t stand it! I’m so angry at you!
What happens with that? Nothing good. The woman’s sacral body elemental is unconsciously programmed to want sex and to hate sex. What I hear from the woman in the astral plane in such instances is … on the unconscious plane, all day long … I want to make love. I want to make love. I want to make love. Maybe with a woman. I can’t do it with a man. My husband will be upset if I feel that with a man … Sotto voce, all day long.
Then what happens when they get together at the end of the day? He suggests making love. She says, No, no, not today. And sotto voce, on the astral plane, I hear from her: I’m not that sexual. I’m not that sexual. I’m not that sexual … Over and over again.
So very clearly, male possessiveness is sabotaging to romantic love. And, I am guessing, female possessiveness might have a similar effect.
SABOTAGING ENERGIES: THE INANIMATE WOMAN
Here is another sabotaging behavior that sometimes affects men. Their sacral chakra has a body elemental with an image of a very sexual woman. Not very bright. Very manipulable …
Image: Silhouette of a lusty woman, ‘the mudflap girl’: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/60/Mudflap_girl.svg/2000px-Mudflap_girl.svg.png ..
Image: Sketch of a lusty young woman, in neon magenta on a black background: https://wingingwithwhitehawk.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/clear1.jpg ..
So these men are in relationship with the woman of their dreams. At night, they make love to what I might call a ‘paper dream’ … not to the real woman, but to the image with which their sacral body elemental is programmed. This woman is a reflection of the unconscious image, not really with a life of her own as far as the body elemental is concerned.
So then quite naturally, in the daytime, such a man’s body elemental will think, all day long, We have no relationship. We have no relationship. We have no relationship … How can he have a relationship with an inanimate object?
Women are waking up now, and beginning to hear what these men’s body elementals are projecting all day long. Consequently, the women take umbrage. They get upset. Then the men get riled. Super riled. This I hear, over and over again, on the astral plane.
For aeons, women have been ‘playing the part’ of the ‘inanimate object’ woman. And men have come to believe that women are like this. And women are not. And on the clair plane, there is great confusion, great disillusionment, on the part of both men and women. What now? What do we do? How do we act? How can we perform this act, now that the cards are on the table?
Flummoxed I am; have no clue what to do about it. I’m petitioning God for a resolution for humankind. (2)
SABOTAGING ENERGIES: THE BRIDAL (BRIDLE) BIT
Here is another male sabotaging energy: the ‘bridle bit’. This is a body elemental that settles on a man’s genitals and feels uncomfortable, like there is a bridle bit there, with this feeling: ‘I’ve been bit by a bridle bit’.
Here the body elemental has misinterpreted the metaphor ‘I’m getting hitched,’ meaning ‘I’m getting married’. The body elemental gets an image of a horse hitched to a hitching post, like in the Western movies. The man has a bride, the genitals are his bridal gift. Note the play on the words ‘bridal’ and ‘bridle’ … the body elemental typically will not know the difference between two words that sound the same.
The horse has a bridle on it; the bridle has a bit (a mouthpiece) on it; and so, the image of the ‘bridle bit’. This bit is uncomfortable in a horse’s mouth, just as the notion of getting married may cause a sense of unease, a feeling of loss of freedom, in the man.
Image of a the head and neck of a horse wearing a bridle and bit: http://www.localriding.com/image-files/bridle-double-2.jpg ..
So the body elemental settles on the genitals, and by constant repetition of the phrase ‘I’m a bridle bit’ creates this feeling of discomfort in the physical body.
Also, the man may think of ‘riding’ the woman … this is a common subconscious image. So there may be a body elemental that sotto voce prompts him to ‘ride’ the woman; that is, to belittle her; or to ‘ride herd on her’; or to ‘de-ride her’; that is, to corral her job-wise or with regard to friendships external to the spousal relationship.
A man with such body elementals will always be feeling equivocal about being married. He will not be able to find true happiness, true joy, in marriage till he reprograms his sabotaging body elementals.
SABOTAGING ENERGIES: THE LADY KILLER
Image from the film “Lady Killer,” 1933 … James Cagney is standing, and Mae Clarke is on the floor. He is dragging her by the hair towards a door … http://nuovocinemalocatelli.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/039-james-cagney-theredlist-700×526.jpg ..
In the way of sabotaging energies, this is one of the most difficult … As far fetched as it may seem, a man who thinks of himself as a ‘lady killer’ will program his unconscious mind to kill women. Literally. This is true both of heterosexual men who find themselves often ‘out on the town’, and of homosexual men who think of the same-gender act of sex as ‘killing women’.
The act of sex is a very potent programmer of the unconscious mind. If you visualize killing women during this act, then you are greatly reinforcing this samskara. In these times of the Great Awakening, the ‘acting out’ about which I have been warning is really the unconscious mind acting out metaphors in a physical sense.
Gentlemen, please observe your thoughts and actions. If they carry risk of retribution by the law, consider your options.
THE UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT CLOUD OF THE WORLD
Image: The painting “Unconscious Mind” by artist Natalie McNeely: a woman sleeping, with inchoate forms swirling round her: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f9/22/b2/f922b235eaff80cc7f323fe29902ac1f.jpg ..
The unconscious thought cloud of the world is like a river that ceaselessly flows through our lower triangle … the basal and sacral chakras and the navel point. It brings in all the lower, denser energies of Earth. This is a natural and expectable thing, because it is through these lower chakras that we relate to Earth energy … the energy of rocks and dirt, for example … which is very slow moving, deeply dreaming sentience.
So, not a bad thing. A very necessary thing. The deeply dreaming sentience of our own lower triangle keeps us anchored to our beautiful Planet Earth.
HEALING THE SABOTAGING PROGRAMS
To heal our own hearts, and allow the hearts of all humankind to heal, we must clear the sabotaging programs from all our chakras. Not only that, but also the projected energies of others, which are constantly unconsciously reprogramming our body elementals.
Earth is, in this sense, a closed system, like a Leyden Jar …
Link: “Leyden Jar” in English Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leyden_jar ..
There may, for a moment, be a brighter spark of energy somewhere in this jar … a spark of enlightenment … a moment of satori. But in the main, all these energies revert back to the mean. In this cycle of Regeneration of New Creation, all the energies in the jar are amping up. Some a little more for a moment, some a little less comparatively in that moment… but in overview, it is all together. All for One, and One for All. We are all awakening together.
And so, when we clear a personal program from one of our own body elementals, we are acting on behalf of humankind. We ourselves have amped up the entire Leyden Jar of Earth. Same same when we clear our own body elementals of a program projected from the unconscious mind of someone else.

SPIRITUAL EGO: ONE-UPMANSHIP
Now about the Leyden Jar… There is a dream many spiritual people have … A dream of enlightenment. All their lives, and most likely in many lifetimes past, they work and have worked toward this goal. And quite naturally, they think of themselves as trying harder, and meriting enlightenment more than the regular man on the street.
Naturally, in the context of Ascension, we tend to borrow from this tradition of enlightenment. We may image ourselves, alone, ‘arising’ (rising in vibration) …

OUR SPIRITUAL COMMONALITY: WHAT THE LAW OF ONE CALLS ‘THE ALL’
But the Leyden Jar reality here on Earth lends itself more to Christ Consciousness than to one-off enlightenment. In truth, Earth herself, our beloved planet Earth, has arisen, and we her children along with her. It is only our own mental filters, our perception of our differences, that partitions us off, sets us apart from our own reunion with God-consciousness.
If we can see the suffering in all human beings, if we can see the Light in them, and recognize it as the Light in us as well … then we will be in a better position to accept this Great Awakening, and to step into New Creation.
If we can set aside all doctrine, all separatist thinking, all divisiveness, all judgment, why then we can walk with Christ. With the Buddha. With all the Great Ones, into the New Reality.
So as spiritual people, let us consider the great commonalities all spiritual people have. Especially, let us not think ourselves better than, more enlightened than, the next spiritual person. Let us consider the Great Love in our hearts. The Great Love that courses through all creation. The All. (3)
Then, without pain we can rise up together.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
